The Beneteau Oceanis 40 Center Cockpit optimizes comfort and easy living in a way that few boats in this price range and size category can approach. It is, in simple terms, a nicely turned out cruiser. An attractive yacht with nice lines when viewed from ashore. The deep secure feeling centre cockpit with fixed screen/sprayood/bimini combination gives excellent protection from the elements and the cutter rig and in-mast furling mainsail give a versatile sail plan and good performance. Going below decks you enter the saloon which has ‘U’ shaped seating around the saloon table to starboard and a very well equipped chart table and navigation area is to port. There are plenty of opening ports giving excellent ventilation and lots of natural light. The engine compartment is located under the cockpit sole and has good access fore and aft and is spotlessly clean, in keeping with the rest of the boat. The owners cabin aft (a very popular feature of these yachts) boasts a huge amount of space you would normally only expect on a much larger yacht, with its centerline double berth, vanity unit and excellent storage. There is a generously sized en-suite heads compartment with separate shower stall. The en-suite double guest cabin is forward of the saloon with a very practical and well thought out layout. The double berth is offset to starboard, with stowage and a settee to port and the heads/shower compartment located in the forepeak area. This is a clever design that maximizes the use of the available space. Beneteau have been a family-owned firm since their inception in 1884, and have maintained a fierce pride in their products quality, performance and value for money throughout that time. Other members of the Beneteau Group include Jeanneau, Lagoon and CNB – between them they offer a huge range of production cruisers and racers, powerboats, catamarans and luxury custom yachts. Come and enjoy a great sailing day aboard a beautiful sailing boat!
